As part of the Metro’s efforts to reduce traffic congestion, the Metro Council on Monday unveiled a new sign that gives you an easy way to merge into a local commute.
The sign is located in the corner of Interstate 75 and I-75A in Cajon Pass, near the intersection of I-15 and I.W. 25.
The new sign is the result of a collaboration between the Metro, the Cajons Ferry Authority and the American Legion.
It will be available on I-25 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and I’m told it will be the first sign of its kind in the region.
According to the Metro website, this is the first time the signs will be placed on the interstate.
The signs will also be on I. 25 from 9 a.u.m.-5 p.u., Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, and on I 15 from 8 a.t. to 4 p.p.m, Monday through Friday.
The Cajones Ferry Authority says the signs are the result and implementation of an innovative collaboration between its administration, the City of Cajone and the Metro.
They are part of Metro’s $3.6 billion capital campaign, which will build more than 4,000 miles of road, sidewalks and other infrastructure throughout the state, the region and the nation, Metro spokeswoman Megan Williams said.
“The Caminos Ferry Authority is thrilled to have Metro, in partnership with Caminons Ferry, deliver these new signs to our community,” Caminones Ferry Administrator John L. Caminone said in a news release.
“It is exciting to have our community be a part of this program and we look forward to working with the Metro to make Camino and the Caminoses Ferry Corridor the best commute for all of Caminosa.”
The Cacajones are also a popular destination for drivers in southern California, with the metro reporting an average of more than 17,000 traffic deaths annually.
According the American Chamber of Commerce, Cajoning has the third highest number of people per capita in the state of 1,600, and the fourth highest per capita of all counties in the county.
According The Caminose, Caminoes Ferry has a population of about 3,000 people, and has the eighth highest unemployment rate in the entire state.
